Forum: GratefulDead Subject: one toke over the line (possibly dead related)

i saw a brewer & shipley show last weekend, and in explaining this song, they took pride in that both lawrence whelk and jerry garcia played it. anyway, i've searched high and low and cannot find anything suggesting garcia or the GD ever played this song. All I can find is that he played pedal steel on a track or two on one of their albums. Does anyone know if he or GD ever played the song?

Here is the Welk version . There is another version where Welk himself introduces it as "a modern gospel song" . I think Myron Floren's cough, show he, and probably most of the guys in the band ( musicians being musicians..) know what is going on .

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Americana? I'm going with Basement Tapes today

This One Toke thread, along with the Levon thread, spurred me to play the Basement Tapes today. This forum has way too much influence on me.

Come to think of it, maybe Lee Dewyze should have tackled one of the Band's numbers. I mean, err, um, if I actually watched American Idol....

you've probably already seen it but if not one of the best scenes in that movie Festival Express is Danko singing Aint no more Cane on the Brazos

Funny - I just watched Festival Express for the first time a few months ago. It's great, and I agree that this part is one of the highlights... he is master of the cool, and you can tell that Janis is just eating it up.

I was lucky enough to see it in the theater when it came out, not just any theater either, out local pizza and brew movie theater. Felt like a little kid seeing all this vintage footage I'd never seen before.

Jerry played pedal steel on the album with that song on it.Maybe they were referring to that.

Personally, I can't imagine Jerry resisting playing on that song. Even if he did not play on the song on the "Tarkio Road" album (which Jerry did officially play on some songs), I would bet money that when Brewer & Shipley rehearsed that song in the studio that Jerry probably jammed along if he were there! That was a great song!
